COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nasce da un “pensiero perverso” di Teo e da anni di ricerca. Una birra ad alta fermentazione che ha subito un processo di macro ossidazione e una maturazione in botti di rovere che le donano profumi di datteri, caramello e un delicato ricordo di legno. Al bicchiere si presenta priva di gasatura e schiuma con note di colore bruno con riflessi ramati

Xyauyù Barrel is the result of a “wicked idea” of Teo’s and years of research. It is a top-fermented beer which has gone through macrooxidation and has been aged in oak rum barrels to give it scents of dates, caramel and a delicate wooden note. When poured, it has no head and no gas; it has a dark color with copper nuances.

2010 bottle, #767. Hazy amber color with no head. Aroma is barrel sugar, sweet malts, toffee. Taste is sugary barrel, malts, super dense, dried fruits. Incredible tastiness and complexity. Oily and silky mouthfeel with flat carbonation. Amazing!

Bottle. Oh my god. Totally amazing beer. Absolutely flat. Tons of vanilla, caramel, dark fruits. Awsome. There is no words to describe how rich this beer is. Totally sweet almost like liquor.

0,5 flaske (nr. 1348) fra Baladin Bologna, delt med Steven i lejligheden okt-17: brunlig rav helt uten skum eller karbonering. Viskøs utskjenking. Madeira-aktig aroma og smak med haugevis av svisker, rosiner, dadler, figen, litt tjære, lær, cigarboks og torvrøyk. Superb fylde og balanse. Øl eller vin? Samme det, dette er en fantastisk smaksopplevelse hvor enkeltelementene går opp i en større helhet, sublim. Thank you, Steven!

Cimbasso (1001) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2017
50cl bottle from Baladin Bologna shared with Jan. Pours like a very dark sherry, but more viscous. Dark brown colour and completely flat. Aromas of dried fruit, prunes and Madeira. Quite a peaty taste with notes of leather, rum, tar, dates, dried fruit and cigar smoke. An incredibly rich and complex drink, which easily be a fortified wine rather than a beer. Rich smoky aftertaste. A truly special and wonderful creation, for which we have to thank the genius who created it.

scirtes (715) - POLAND - AUG 27, 2017
Bottle, 2010 edition. Pours ruby, completely flat, a bit hazy. Aromas of dried fruits, raisins, plums, lots of sweetness. Taste is sweet with marked bitter aftertase, a bit woody, and some decent warming alcohol. Delicious beer, among best barley wines I’ve tried so far.

Aminatchime (178) - BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2017
Donkere rood-bruine kleur zonder schuimkraag. Geur is zoet, honing, caramel en heeft iets weg wisky. Smaak is zoet, vol, honing een een tikkeltje caramel. Geeft een zijdezacht gevoel in de mond dat lang aanhoud. Geen overheersende alcohol smaak ondanks dat het toch veel weg heeft van wisky. Ideaal om lang van te genieten net zoals je bij een goede wisky doet.

fkoolen (1335) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 Taster 2010 ed. @ Baladin, Bologna. Beautiful dark, reddish chestnut colour, no head and no carbonation. Drinks like a fine, old porto wine with raisins, figs, dates, plums, rum and vinous notes, vanilla, wood, light char, hazelnut, toffee, mocha, huge warmth of the alcohol. Looong lingering aftertaste, sweet rum and dried fruity. Huge body, really soft mouthfeel, sticky and amazingly thick. Mind blowing.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2017 2013 vintage @Lambiczoon, Milan
Honey, dates, figs,caramel plus amazing thickness & smoothness.More of a Madera wine than a beer.No carbonation whatsoever. Luv vanilla fin 2010 vintage @Pułapka, Gańsk
This is the definition of richness. It blows your mind with the aroma, then does a Mortal Kombat style fatality with the taste. Perfection! Sweet honey aroma with vanilla, caramel and woody finish. Taste is sweet and full of toffee. Dried fruit sweetness and almond tastes. Mead type od sweetness is dominating and hides some richness that comes out as it warms amazingly smooth

My god it is delicious. Raisin syrup with no carbonation. Beautiful barrel notes (both in the aroma and in taste) alcohol balance is on the spot (you feel it in a pleasant way). BW to be praised.
